SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. EYE PROTECTION which conforms to
ANSI specifications and provides protection
against flying particles both from the FRONT
and SIDE should ALWAYS be worn by the
operator and others in the work area when
connecting to air supply, loading, operating
or servicing this tool. Eye protection is
required to guard against flying fasteners
and debris, which could cause severe eye
injury.
2. The employer and/or user must ensure
that proper eye protection is worn. Eye
protection equipment must conform to the
requirements of the American National
Standards Institute, ANSI Z87.1 and provide
both frontal and side protection.
3. NOTE: Non-side shielded spectacles and
face shields alone do not provide adequate
protection.
Additional Safety
Protection will be required in some
environments. For example, the working
area may include exposure to noise level
which can lead to hearing damage. The
employer and user must ensure that any
necessary hearing protection is provided
and used by the operator and others in
the work area. Some environments will
require the use of head protection
equipment. When required, the employer
and user must ensure that head
protection conforming to ANSI Z89.1 is
used.
4.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose
clothing or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep
your hair, clothing, and gloves away from
moving parts.
5. Keep fingers away from trigger when not
driving fasteners to avoid accidental firing.
6. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
Page 3
and balance at all times. Proper footing and
balance enables better control of the tool in
unexpected situations.
6. Do not use on a ladder or unstable
support. Stable footing on a solid surface
enables better control of the tool in
unexpected situations.
7. Tool service must be performed only by
qualified repair personnel. Service or
maintenance performed by unqualified
personnel may result in a risk of injury.
8. When servicing a tool, use only identical
replacement parts. Use of unauthorized
parts may create a risk of injury.

operator's manual carefully. Learn its
applications and limitations, as well as the
specific potential hazards related to this
tool. Following this rule will reduce the risk
of electric shock, fire, or serious injury.
10. Always wear safety glasses with side
shields. Everyday glasses have only impact
resistant lenses. They are NOT safety
glasses. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of eye injury.
11. Protect your lungs. Wear a face or dust
mask if the operation is dusty. Following
this rule will reduce the risk of serious
personal injury.
12. Protect your hearing. Wear hearing
protection during extended periods of
operation. Following this rule will reduce the
risk of serious personal injury.
13.
Make sure the hose is free of
obstructions or snags. Entangled or snarled
hoses can cause loss of balance or footing
and may become damaged.
14. Use the tool only for its intended use.
Do not discharge fasteners into open air.
15. Use the MENARDS pneumatic tool only
for the purpose for which it was designed.
16. Use only the fasteners recommended
for this tool. Use of the wrong fasteners
could result in poor fastener feeding,
jammed fasteners, and nails leaving the tool
at erratic angles. If fasteners are not
feeding smoothly and properly, discontinue
their use immediately. Jammed and
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
improperly feeding fasteners could result in
serious personal injury.
17. Never use this tool in a manner that could
cause a fastener to be directed toward the
user or others in the work area.
18. Do not use the tool as a hammer.
19. Always be aware that misuse and
improper handling of this tool can cause
injury to yourself and others.
20. Never leave a tool unattended with the air
hose attached.
21. Do not operate this tool if it does not
contain a legible warning label.
22. Do not continue to use a tool that leaks air
or does not function properly.
1. Do not use supply sources which can
potentially exceed 200 P.S.I. as tool may
burst, possibly causing injury.
2. The connector on the tool must not hold
pressure when air supply is disconnected. If
a wrong fitting is used, the tool can remain
charged with air after disconnecting and thus
will be able to drive a fastener even after the
air line is disconnected possibly causing
injury.
3. Do not pull trigger or depress contact arm
while connected to the air supply as the tool
may cycle, possibly causing injury.
4. Always disconnect air supply: 1.) Before
making adjustments; 2.) When servicing the
tool; 3.) When clearing a jam; 4.) When tool is
not in use; 5.) When moving to a different
work area, as accidental actuation may
occur, possibly causing injury.
When loading tool: 1.) Never place a hand or
any other part of the body in fastener
discharge area of tool; 2.) Never point tool at
anyone; 3.) Do not pull the trigger or depress
the trip as accidental actuation may occur,
possibly causing injury.
1. Always handle the tool with care: 1.)
Never engage in horseplay; 2.) Never pull
the trigger unless nose is directed toward
the work; 3.) Keep others a safe distance
from the tool while tool is in operation as
accidental actuation may occur, possibly
causing injury.
2. The operator must not hold the trigger
pulled on contact arm tools except during
fastening operation as serious injury could
result if the trip accidentally contacted
someone or something, causing the tool to
cycle.
3. Keep hands and body away from the
discharge area of the tool. A contact arm
tool may bounce from the recoil of driving a
fastener and an unwanted second fastener
may be driven possibly causing injury.
4. Check operation of the contact arm
mechanism frequently. Do not use the tool if
the arm is not working correctly as
accidental driving of a fastener may result.
Do not interfere with the proper operation of
the contact arm mechanism.
5. Do not drive fasteners on top of other
fasteners or with the tool at an overly steep
angle as this may cause deflection of
fasteners which could cause injury.
6. Do not drive fasteners close to the edge
of the work piece as the wood may split,
allowing the fastener to be deflected
possibly causing injury.
7. Do not point the tool toward yourself or
anyone whether it contains fasteners or not.
8.
Always ensure that the workpiece
contact is fully positioned above the
workpiece. Positioning the workpiece
contact on ly partially above the workpiece
could cause the fastener to miss the
workpiece completely and result in serious
personal injury.
Page 4
Do not use oxygen,
combustible gases, or bottled gases as a
power source for this tool as tool may
explode, possibly causing injury. Keep the
tool pointed away from yourself and others
when connecting air source.
A pressure regulator with an operating
pressure of 0 - 125 p.s.i. (0 - 8.79 kg/cm2) is
required to control the operating pressure for
safe operation of this tool. Do not connect
this tool to air pressure which can potentially
exceed 200 p.s.i. (14 kg/cm2) as tool may
fracture or burst, possibly causing injury.
Install a male plug on the tool which is free
flowing and which will release air pressure
from the tool when disconnected from the
supply source.
Air hoses should have a minimum of 150
p.s.i. (10.6 kg/cm2) working pressure rating or
150 percent of the maximum pressure that
could be produced in the air system. The
supply hose should contain a fitting that will
provide "quick disconnecting" from the male
plug on the tool.
Use only clean regulated compressed air as a
power source for this tool. NEVER USE
OXYGEN, COMBUSTIBLE GASES, OR
BOTTLED GASES, AS A POWER SOURCE
FOR THIS TOOL AS TOOL MAY EXPLODE.
Page 5
Do not exceed recommended maximum
operating pressure wear will be greatly
increased. The air supply must be capable
maintaining the operating pressure at the
tool. Pressure drops in supply can reduce
the tool's driving power. Refer to
SPECIFICATIONS" for setting the correct
operating pressure tool.
Dirt and water in the air supply are major
causes of wear in pneumatic tools. A filter
will help to get the best performance and
minimum wear from the tool. The filter must
have adequate flow capacity for the specific
installation. The filter has to be kept clean to
be effective in providing clean compressed
air to the tool. Consult the manufacturer's
instructions on proper maintenance of your
filter. A dirty and clogged filter will cause a
pressure drop which will reduce the tool's
performance.

TOOL OPERATION
EYE PROTECTION which conforms to ANSI specifications and provides protection
against flying particles both from the FRONT and SIDE should ALWAYS be worn
by the operator and others in the work area when connecting to air supply, loading,
operating or servicing this tool. Eye protection is required to guard against flying
fasteners and debris, which could cause severe eye injury.
The employer and/or user must ensure that proper eye protection is worn. Eye
protection equipment must conform to the requirements of the American National
Standards Institute, ANSI Z87.1 and provide both frontal and side protection.
NOTE: Non-side shielded spectacles and face shields alone do not provide
adequate protection.
Additional Safety Protection will be required in some environments. For example,
the working area may include exposure to noise level which can lead to hearing
damage. The employer and user must ensure that any necessary hearing protection
is provided and used by the operator and others in the work area. Some environments

I. READ AND UNDERSTAND THE WARNINGS CONTAINED IN THIS MANUAL.
II. REFER TO "TOOL SPECIFICATIONS" IN THIS MANUAL TO IDENTIFY THE OPERATING SYSTEM ON
YOUR TOOL.
OPERATION
A. SINGLE FASTENER PLACEMENT: To operate the tool in this manner, first position the contact trip on the
work surface, WITHOUT PULLING THE TRIGGER. Depress the contact trip until the nose touches the work
surface and then pull the trigger to drive a fastener. Do not press the tool against the work with extra force.
Instead, allow the tool to recoil off the work surface to avoid a second unwanted fastener. Remove your
finger from the trigger after each operation.
B. RAPID FASTENER OPERATION: To operate the tool in this manner, hold the tool with the contact trip
pointing towards but not touching the work surface. Pull the trigger and then tap the contact trip against the
work surface using a bouncing motion. Each depression of the contact trip will cause a fastener to be driven.
The operator must not hold the trigger pulled on contact trip tools except during fastening
operation, as serious injury could result if the trip accidentally contacted someone or
something, causing the tool to cycle.
Keep hands and body away from the discharge area of the tool. A contact trip tool may
bounce from the recoil of driving a fastener and an unwanted second fastener may be
driven, possibly causing injury.
The SEQUENTIAL TRIP MODEL contains a contact trip that operates in conjunction with the trigger to drive a
fastener. To operate a sequential trip tool, first position the contact trip on the work surface WITHOUT PULLING
THE TRIGGER. Depress the contact trip and then pull the trigger to drive a fastener. As long as the contact trip
is contacting the work and is held depressed, the tool will drive a fastener each time the trigger is depressed.
If the contact trip is allowed to leave the work surface, the sequence described above must be repeated to drive
another fastener.
